A look inside the A747.
The A747 might look a little plain from the outside, but it is built upon a foundation of total screwless use, which means that case doesn't use screws to access the case or the rails.
The rails for the drives are built into the case of the drive bays and use the simple method of pushing the clip all the way to the left, and then insert the device.
